nonlinear equations, Aitken method


In this note we study the convergence of a generalized Aitken type method for approximating the solutions of nonlinear equations in \({\mathbb R}\). We obtain conditions which assure monotone convergence of the generated sequences. We also obtain a posteriori estimations for the errors.
